1961: Gymnast Nadia Comaneci, a five-time Olympic gold medalist, is born in Onesti, Romania. Comaneci, seen here in 1977, is the first person in Olympic Games history to score a perfect 10 in gymnastics, which she did at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal. She also earned three silvers and a bronze in her Olympic career, which also included the 1980 Olympics in Moscow.
